Re: Denford Orac. Not moving in Z and X axis

sorry that was a bit misleading. The base is made of two parts, the main part is the sides and upper which is one piece with the lathe on top, and the second part is the bottom plate which has all the electronics mounted to it.

Re: Denford Orac. Not moving in Z and X axis

that is an sd2/3 drive, a lot of the earlier oracs had cd20 drivers and they are not interchangeable.

Re: Denford Orac. Not moving in Z and X axis

that's an early orac, and possibly it has the wrong drivers in there. Can you measure the supply voltage for the drivers, and take a photo of the power supply.

Re: Help needed with Orac lathe!

Are the steppers locking up, if not check the drives are fully home in their sockets (only check this when the power is off).
